Joining several other area squads, Tilden Rescue acquired the new LUCAS 3 auto pulse machine.
The LUCAS is designed to do compressions so that rescue personnel can focus on airways and other aspects of patient care. This is especially helpful for long transports or if the ambulance is shorthanded, which is a great tool for rural EMS to be provided with.
The rescue members have recently be trained to use the new device during a real-life CPR situation where they were to apply the device to a mannequin. Practice with the machine can better prepare the squad for future scenarios.
Updating all local rescue units with the LUCAS 3 helps each squad better transport and aid patients. The Tilden Rescue unit is excited for this new machine and hopes it will provide even more help in the future.
